An internationally recognized researcher in psychiatry, Clayton became known for her studies on mood disorders and bereavement. She was the first to define mania and schizoaffective disorders. In 1967 Clayton and her mentor, George Winokur, were the first Americans to describe the separation of mood disorders into unipolar and bipolar illnesses. In the late 1960s and early 1970s, Clayton published landmark research on the symptoms and normal course of bereavement. Clayton co-authored the first textbook on mania, Manic Depressive Illness, in 1969. Her publications to date include over 160 papers, three additional books, and 20 book chapters.

In 1980 Clayton left Washington University to head the Department of Psychiatry at the University of Minnesota School of Medicine, thus becoming the first woman to chair a department of psychiatry in the U.S. and the first woman to head a department in the medical school of the University of Minnesota. After almost 20 years in Minnesota, Clayton retired as professor emeritus of Psychiatry. She then joined the faculty of the University of New Mexico School of Medicine, where she is currently a professor of Psychiatry.
